Looks good, carbonation is good, lacing and retention is above average

Smell is the best part. spicy mild hopping. main event is the spicy, floral yeast note. a hint of maltly smell (like the smell of mashing in) Almost as strong of a yeasty aroma as a saison or belgian but not quite as agressive and more lagery.

middle is above average. It tastes like it should but nothing super outstanding here. Very quaffable.

Mouthfeel is pretty good. Crisp in the middle but a bit creamy on the finish.

Overall a great beer and a reasonable price for a session beer. Very drinkable. Full Pint once again does not disappoint.

Snagged a bottle at my local Allegheny six pack shop

A - A bright clear yellow, great carbonation giving me a 1/2 inch of suds and some bubbles in the glass. Not bad for a pils.
S - Cracker and biscuit, some lemon peel, wheat, and a touch of hop presence.
T - Not as skunky as I expected making for a very crisp drinking pils. Taste is rather sweet with biscuit malt and a touch of skunky hop taste. Not bad.
M - Light to medium so it's pretty sweet how its clocking in at 6%

Overall I guess I am a sucker for new beers but I just can't seem to love un uber hopped Pilsners. Not bad if that's your bag.

Picked up a sixer for $7.99. Bottle into pint glass. Will drink the rest from the bottles.

Golden and clear with nice carbonation.

Clean, bready, and crackery. Some floral hops in there as well.

Malts up front. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness.

Smooth, clean feel. Doesn't feel as carbonated as it looks.

A really good beer. Definitely enjoyed it and will drink again.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger of pure white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is mainly of a bready and caramel nature. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter fruit smells of apple as well as some other sweeter toffee aromas. A very light grassy hop smell is there as well rounding out the aroma nicely.

Taste – The taste begins bready with some caramel and apple sweetness upfront. The bready taste creates a base for the brew remaining relatively constant throughout the taste. The sweet however, does not act as a base and instead loses strength as the taste advances to the end. While the sweet fades, some hop flavors of a grassy and hay-like nature come to the tongue. Along with the hop so too comes some more grainy flavors, which when combined with the rest, leave a lightly sweetened, bready and crisp pilsner flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather appropriate for the styles and the flavors with the lighter body and higher carbonation keeping it feeling rather refreshing.

Overall – A very easy drinking brew with a nice blend of bready, sweet, and hopped. While not anything to go nuts about it is easy to drink and relatively refreshing.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a gold/honey gold color. Lace deposits are delicate and trickling. Head retention is okay. Clarity is nice.

Citrusy hops permeate a floral aroma of malt grassiness. Very mellow ale sweetness with a pilsner-like grain crispness.

Has a nice citrus note that reminds me of grapefruit and lemon, but is mostly dominated my grainy malts, herbal grassiness, and a light floral touch. Bitterness is decent, considering it's not terribly that dry. I can see where this brewed to a pilsner style now, although it lacks the crispness. A little powdery and medicinal, but it promotes more dryness. The feel is smooth with a crackle. Chalky, but refreshing.

Maybe it's not meant to be a German Pils, but I could be wrong. I'd rate it higher as a pale lager or even a Czech Pils.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Good drinking here, while this beer may not be shaking the ground underneath me with each sip I had no problem quaffing it back.

LOOK: Clear straw color, good amount of froth and stickage on the glass.

SMELL: Spicy hop, herbal, dried grass, doughy malt, lemon pith, semi-clean

TASTE: Snappy carbonation, hay, earthy, peppery, spicy, chalky, ample hop bitterness, slight alcoholic warmth, faintly biscuity, drying grainy finish

Pours a bright golden color with a sudsy, crackling head. Recedes to a ring around the edges. Smells bready with a cracker like yeast influence. Faint stewed hop smell. In the taste, bread, lemon citrus, grass and biscuit. Has a light zesty bitterness. Perhaps more wheat influence than usual for a German pils, but still easy drinking and pretty nice.

Bottle > Mason Pint

A - Clear and extremely light straw color, no head, no lacing.
S - Sweet grains, a little apple, pear, a little skunky
T - Very sweet grains, light pear, a touch of pepper.
M - Light and refreshing, a tad dry
O - Too sweet for my tastes, but an OK pils. Cool idea for the local area, especially if you like the Pittsburgh Dad skits. Consumed to celebrate the Pens overtime win against Vancouver.

This beer suffers from many of the same issues that most lacking pilsners seem to carry. Cloying malty sweetness. The clogged flavor doesn't allow any nuance to show through. Just a wad of mild grain and thick sweetness. Feel is smooth, but it doesn't really matter much. This wrinkly shirt needs ironed.

A: It pours into my Pittsburgh Steelers 6-time Super Bowl Champs glass perfectly. It finishes right at the tip of the Super Bowl XLIII logo, just like Santonio Holmes' toe tipped inside the endzone for the game winning touchdown. It doesn't have much of a head, but there's a lot of action in the beer as bubbles rise to the top. 3.5

S: Sweet malts, a slight fruitiness, and a strange tart character dominate the aroma. Bready and clean, I must say that it smells a bit strange. It's not unlike how I imagine Jeffy smells after he spends all day causing trouble down at the crick. 2.5

T: Oh I tell ya, this better be kept in the downstairs refrigerator where the kids can't get it. The beer is very sweet, but unfortunately that's about it. The fruitiness is semi-prevalent, but isn't strong enough to make this more than an average pilsner. 3

MF: Light and prickly with plenty of carbonation, the beer is an easy drinker. One that I would surely order at the next Pens game.

Value: Much like the Pirates' 2013 roster, this beer is a great value at less than $10 per sixpack. 3-2-1 buy it and win. 4

O: The label says it all “Is it a craft beer. No, if yinz want crafts, go down to the church fair with your gram!”...and while you're there, how about you pick me up something that tastes a bit better, like an I.C. Light!. 3
